Emergency Alert System Generator

Posted Image


I'm sure most of you have seen, or at least heard of Emergency Alert System broadcasts. It's a system used to send alerts over TV, radio, and other forms of communication for things like tornado warnings, presidential messages, or most of the time, just tests to make sure the system is running when the time is needed.

I got bored today, and after watching a mock EAS broadcast that admittedly creeped me the heck out at first, I decided to make a little app so I could generate my own.

Anyways, this program allows you to generate realistic looking EAS broadcasts. You can type in the name of the threat (Default is Tornado), type of threat (Default is Warning), group that issued the alert (Default is National Weather Service), and the message that scrolls along.

This is not to be used as an actual broadcasting tool, and it is just for fun. I am not responsible for anything that results from you using this program.


Space (Hold) - Static Effect

Enter (Hold) - Blank/mute broadcast

F4 - Toggle windowed/fullscreen mode

F9 - Screenshot

- parabolix for his EAS warning tone

It's limited but neat, and it's given me an idea for my game Reality Check...

Real programmers don't document. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.
